I didn’t get to walk far on Delos apart from being hot, my knee suddenly decided to give me pain, a lot of pain which is unusual and I found it hard to walk. I managed the shortest walk and the museum in the hour and half but didn’t manage many of the splendid remains further up the hill. Like the best mosaic floors and the theatre which still looked impressive from further away. Ah well, it just means I’ll have to go back sometime.
These are a few images of the area I did manage to see.
The original Naxos Lions are inside the museum on Delos and these replica lions are where the originals stood. A gift to the citizens of Delos from Naxos they have survived thousands of years of storms and the sacking of Delos not once but twice. Delos was an extremely wealthy island and the centre of commerce and history.
